This Cardiff pizzeria has been shortlisted for a national sustainability award

Dusty Knuckle Pizza is the only Welsh restaurant to have been shortlisted for the ‘people’s favourite’ in the Sustainable Restaurant Association’s ‘Food Made Good Awards’ 2018.

With public voting to decide the winner now open, they’re hoping that support from local foodies and friends will help them take the coveted top spot.

Since 2012, the Sustainable Restaurant Association’s Food Made Good Awards have honoured the trailblazers effecting positive change in kitchens across the food service sector. 

This year, hundreds of sustainable eateries were nominated for the ‘people’s favourite’ category by members of the public. Then, a crack team of foodie judges picked out the three businesses who they thought did the most to champion local producers, reduce waste and support their local community.

The overall winner will now be decided by the public vote, but the competition is fierce; also in the final three is the Michelin Star Black Swan restaurant in Yorkshire, and the hugely popular Breakfast Club diner in Soho, London.

Dusty Knuckle owner Phill Lewis said he was shocked but thrilled to have been shortlisted. He explained, “My wife and I quit our jobs to start a business that we hoped would encourage people to start asking questions about how their food is made and where it comes from. To be in the position a couple of years later where we’re up against a Michelin star restaurant for an award like this is pretty amazing.”

“Hopefully we’ll have loads of support from across Wales, but whether we win or not, we’re just thrilled to have made the final three, and to be championing sustainable food in Wales on a national scale.”
